Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 9/23/2013
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 9:00 PM
Description:
 Communicating with your health care provider can be complicating, especially if you are ill or seeing multiple physicians. Sometimes we might only have 5-10 minutes of actual "face time" with our doctor. Remembering all the questions you have, understanding what the doctor said, making sure that all your providers are working together, keeping track of multiple appointments, insurance, Medicare, prescriptions...it's enough to make your head spin! In this session, presented by Sarah Moore of Arden Courts Memory Care Community and Patricia Money of Grandmas Girlfriend, you will learn how to be an advocate for your own medical treatment while ensuring that your family understands your wishes related to your care.
